This most classy of classic horror anthologies is reissued by Pan this month with a brand new forward by renowned horror expert Johnny Mains. The original Pan Book of Horror Stories first appeared fifty years ago and went on to and some of these authors may no longer be household names, the shadow they cast over the field still remains as scarily charged as when these stories were first released.
" Fifty years ago Pan launched a series of books that were to delight and disgust - sometimes even on the same page – readers for thirty years. From classics in the genre to scraping-the-barrel nastiness, the Pan Books of Horror had them all and they continue to be a major influence in published anthologies to the present day.
We're delighted, therefore, to announce the reissue of the very first Pan Book of Horror. Specially selected for Pan, here are 22 terrifying tales of horror by such famous authors as Peter Fleming, C. S. Forester, Bram Stoker, Angus Wilson, Noel Langley, Jack Finney and L. P. Hartley.
Stories of the uncanny jostle with tales of the macabre. Stories of subtle beastliness---like Rasberry Jam; of sickening horror---like The Fly or His Beautiful Hands; and of utter chilling terror---like The Horror of the Museum!
The perfect bedside book---for those with nerves of steel! "
